Kyle of Lochalsh pier

Queues of traffic built up through the village of Kyle of Lochalsh at busy times, particularly in the Summer, as the ferries in the 1950s could only transport 4 vehicles at a time across to Kyleakin on Skye. Waiting at the front of the queue on the jetty is a Hillman Minx, with a Jowett Javelin behind. The Humber Hawk disembarking from the ferry probably belonged to Iain R. Hilleary, a well known County Councillor in the area. This photograph was published as a postcard
